With 116 educators at four schools, Rossford Exempted Village Schools strives for excellence in its mission to educate and graduate all students to become creative and productive members of society. Our vision focuses on preparing and inspiring students to achieve excellence today, in college, and career readiness in all future endeavors.
In 2020 our district will be in completely new or renovated 21st Century learning environments either at a 6-12 grade downtown building, or elementary school where Glenwood Elementary is currently located. Rossford Schools offers Open Enrollment for students outside of our district, and a terrific Preschool Program housed in our elementary school.
The district has been awarded with five consecutive Auditor of the Year Awards for clean audits.
During the 2016-17 school year, Rossford Schools students saw Performance Index ratings jump from 68.5 percent to 73 percent. Prepared for Success grew from 25 percent to 31 percent. In the 23 testing areas that the Ohio Department of Education reviews, Rossford Schools had higher passage rates in 17 of those sections (some jumped 20 percent).
While the scores have increased, Rossford Schools continues to strive for excellence in the classroom. The curriculum goal is to have our students at 80 percent proficient or above in each grade level by 2019. Learning improvement initiatives will help the district achieve those goals. Growth Mindset, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support, and Response to Intervention are the three areas the district is investing time and training to create a Universal Design for Learning environment to help engage students with content.
Rossford Schools also prepares students to become creative and productive members of society through extra-curricular activities. Rossford High School offers 17 varsity sports, five various styles of award-winning bands, several choirs, an acclaimed drama club, art programs with opportunities to showcase student talent in the community, a Serving Our Soldiers (SOS) Club, and Reading Club among other after-school programs. The SOS Club sends care packages and cards to local soldiers serving in the military.
The district serves students who reside in a 42-square mile area within the cities of Rossford and Northwood as well as Perrysburg and Lake Townships. The staff is committed to meeting the academic, safety, and welfare needs of each child. Students are offered challenging and innovative classes along with special programs and extracurricular activities.
